Hi, I'm Shrimp!
I’m a non-binary florist living in Los Angeles and I own and operate Flower Shrimp. Flower Shrimp was started in 2018 when I found myself experimenting with a variety of cactus and succulent arrangements. I had a few clients asking about specialty pots and this led to testing out various forms of cement pottery. I found the process of making something clean, minimal, and beautiful from such a rugged and industrial material very fulfilling. After spending nine years working in retail, transitioning to an artistic practice was therapeutic for me and I began to wonder if there was a way to turn this newfound hobby into a commercially viable small business.
Since then I've expanded my practice to include traditional hand built clay pottery and wheel thrown ceramics.
You can find Flower Shrimp at the Rose Bowl Flea Market on the second Sunday of every month in stall 0840 A/C PINK area.
You can shop a curated selection of my cement and clay pottery at Stuff in Hollywood and Ron Herman on Melrose.
In addition to creating clay and cement pottery, I am also a florist and am available for custom floral design for weddings, events, or other floral needs.
